Hello friends!

I am reminded of the lyrics to the song "Goodness of God" by Bethel:

I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never failed me
All my days, I've been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

The goodness of our Lord just keeps running after me!

We have had a great month, with a trip to Vision ministry camp for ropes course, team building exercises, leap of faith, with hot dogs and s'mores afterwards. The attendance for the event was pretty low because of jobs, boy scouts and other events, but those who came had a great time. 

We are still studying the book of Ephesians each week. We will take a chapter, divide up in small groups, and each group is assigned 3-4 verses to study and answer questions about. Then a person from each group presents to everyone what they came up with. The next week we revisit that same chapter, only this time I will give the lesson and go a little deeper into it. God has blessed this study, and I know that His Word never returns void. 

Here are a few verses from Ephesians chapter 3, and this is my prayer for these students, that they will experience the love of God, because it is too great to understand.

Ephesians 3:18-19:

" And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God."

Thank you all so much for your faithful prayers and financial support for this ministry!

We had a great time at Vision Ministry camp. One of our team building exercises was the log challenge.

The "Leap of Faith". You have to climb up the 30 ft. pole, stand up, then jump off and ring the bell.

(Right) Our group wrote letters of encouragement to Christians in  Nigeria who are being persecuted for their faith.
